Free Update When You Buy SONAR 8


Cakewalk has announced a unique promotion – users who buy or upgrade to SONAR 8 Producer or SONAR 8 Studio will receive the next paid update to SONAR as a free download when released.
Anthony Conte, Cakewalk's vice president of sales, had this to say, "Retailers have reported to us that software sales over the summer tend to slow down as customers anticipate big updates in the autumn. Cakewalk is offering this free promotion to address the concerns of customers who want to buy the latest version of SONAR but are concerned that they might be left behind if the next update is around the corner. So now you can start making music with SONAR 8 today, and then enjoy a host of new features for free when the next update is released."
